Number Pad won't work

    My number pad on my keyboard doesn't work all of a sudden. Anyone know how to fix? I have to press the shift first before pressing the numbers in order for it to work.

    I am having the same problem, but I didn't know about the shift holding to use it.

    If anybody knows what this is, I'm sure that both of us would appreciate it.

    Number pad fix


    Go to System Preferences / Universal Access / Mouse and turn "Mouse Keys" off.

    Thanx for your help, that was really bothering me for a while there. Especially when I was trying to do speadsheets and the like.

    On a separate note, my eject button doesn't eject my internal drive, all it does is pops up the fancy graphic. It won't open or close the drive unless I use something like iTunes to do it.

    that's strange. I've never heard of that happening before. I'm sorry I can't help on that one.
